Center Theatre Group’s Artistic Director Michael Ritchie hosts “30 to Curtain,” a podcast featuring 30-minute interviews with some of the theatre artists creating work across the stages of the Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, and Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles.

Joining this episode of “30 to Curtain” is Bill Irwin, who joins Center Theatre Group at the Douglas with his tour-de-force and deeply personal play, On Beckett. Bill is regularly called a virtuoso, a master of his craft, and has been designated a “genius” by the MacArthur Foundation. You’ve seen him in everything from TV shows like “CSI” and “Sesame Street” to his Tony Award®-winning turns in plays like “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Fool Moon”—roles he reprised with Center Theatre Group. Bill is a multi-hyphenate artist and creator—and also exactly the right guide into the world and work of playwright Samuel Beckett.
